Trader Ad AwarenessThe ExplorOz Trader has long been a very fast and convenient classifieds system for our site users with many happy buyers and sellers. You get good bang for your dollar, you can have a large item description, multiple colour photos, and you can answer queries via email with all correspondence initiated by the interested buyer. It's rare that something goes wrong but occasionally a scammer will target online classifieds and enter bogus products for sale as happened over the weekend with a Winebago for $18k. Although we had the bogus ads removed within 1 business day, remember the saying - if it seems too good to
be true - it often is!! If you have any suspicions about an ad - don't contact them, instead you can send us an email and we'll look into it.
